HA NOI (VNS)— President Truong Tan Sang has asked Ha Noi Law University to actively work to become the nation's leading institution in training legal professionals.
During his working visit to the university, Sang, who is also the head of the Central Steering Committee on Judicial Reforms, urged that all areas be reviewed, from teaching staff, curricula and infrastructure to issues relating to policies and priorities for people working in the legal sector.
Sang also asked the Ministry of Justice to pay more attention to, and have closer input in the university's activities, as well as create more favourable conditions for lecturers and students to have more experiences available to them in the legal profession.
The Ha Noi Law University, established in 1979, has the responsibility of educating undergraduate and graduate level students, researching laws, disseminating information and consulting laws. There are nearly 15,000 students studying the three major subjects offered: Law, Economic Law and International Trade Law. Another major area of study, English language in law, will be opened to students next year.
